Praxair and TAFA 140MXC TM Nano Composite Wire

Material review:

Praxair and TAFA 140MXC nano composite wire is a unique material specifically developed for superior coatings utilizing the latest in arc spray equipment and material technology. The 140MXC wire is part of a Praxair and TAFA development program into new thermal spray wires for arc spray coatings, which contain a mixture of nanocrystalline and amorphous phases.

The 140MXC wire sprayed at optimized parameters generate high quality coatings, characterized with low porosity, high hardness, exceptionally superior wear resistance, good corrosion protection, and homogeneous particle distribution.

Note: Standard air caps and positioners can be used in 8835 and 9000 systems.

Using excessive voltage reduces the quality of the coating. Voltage should be adjusted to give minimum noise and smooth arc operation. Excessive voltage causes larger particles and poor spray pattern. Too low voltage will cause popping.

Be sure not to overheat the substrate even if this means stopping to allow cooling, use air jet cooling if greater speed is required. Note that on some applications where preheating is tolerable, preheat work to 300 o F can improve bond and deposit efficiency.

Hazards:

Observe normal spraying practices, respiratory protection and proper airflow patterns advised. For general spray practices, see AWS Publications AWS C2.1-73, "Recommended Safe Practices for Thermal Spraying" and AWS TSS-85, "Thermal Spraying, Practice, Theory and Application." Thermal spraying is a completely safe process when performed in accordance with proper safety measures. Become familiar with local safety regulations before starting spray operations. DO NOT operate your spraying equipment or use the spray material supplied before you have thoroughly read the Praxair and TAFA Instruction Manual.

A Material Safety Data Sheet will be sent with each initial purchase and updated as required.
